Today the weather was really good. As we were on the CFG lands as a guest, we decided to do some work on the CFG tracks and to deliver some pipes and cables.

Here few pictures of our work today.


New cables and pipes delivery, we could see that some new ballast has been had recently and some work has been done on the side of the track. The CFG tracks are well kept by it's owner.





At the station, some pipes has been deliver for some new drainaged.








We were awaiting another delivery, when we had a call. Our next train had an accident in the deapest forest of the CFG land. We just received the first pictures of the accident. (real accident)





We decided to divert a cargo train to send a crane for the rescue





The cargo train waited at the station until the line was cleared.






This delayed the delivery of paint and final equipment for the CFG Engineering & Co, who decided to do a test run of it's new "draisine" without it. But that's another story.

This is what happens when you have people with extra large rolling stock and no railway to run it on......yet Laughing

Those LGB transporter wagons are really huge and just shows how tight my curves are. Embarassed

I think that Playmobil diesel and the DB cargo wagon are in for some future bashing.

We should try and go for a photo visit at the TSO depot (if they'll let us) in Chelles.

I learn something about that, for my future tracks I will use the longest wagon to cut the edge at the right size. Might be good as well if one day i have on of those very long steam locomotive.

Here for our case it was not the tree, but a stone at the corner of the forrest. Anyway the train was as well going to fast in the curve.

Maybe the driver didn't see the speed limits for this curve sunny too much sun Very Happy

Nice pics there - hey Carl, it wasn't "Nuncio Grissoni" doing the driving was it?
